AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Palace of the Governors is the oldest continually occupied public building in the country. It was built in 1610 and while it’s noted as the Palace of the Governors, the governor doesn’t actually live here. You can browse the jewelry and crafts by Native American artists beneath the portal overlooking the Plaza, then explore the period rooms within the palace’s four foot thick adobe walls. The Segesser Hide Paintings depict a 1720 military expedition—kind of a photo-reportage of its day on bison hide.
